National Prevention Research Initiative (NPRI) collaboration

WCRF International was a founding member and is part of a consortium of 16 funding partners committed up to £12 million over five years to support the National Prevention Research Initiative (NPRI).

The focus is on behaviours associated with significant risks to health-such as poor diet, physical activity, alcohol consumption-and on environmental factors that influence those behaviours.

Research aims to improve health and prevent chronic diseases including cancer. Some specific case studies illustrate NPRI funded research in the diet and physical activity area.
